Why Corrugated Boxes Need to be Recycled

  • Corrugated can be recycled many times. Amazingly 60% of residential corrugated boxes are sent to the landfill, according to The Recycling Partnership.
  • This alarming statistic is partly due to consumers choosing the refuse can over the recycling bin because their boxes don’t fit neatly in their bins. Recyclestrip makes it simple for the household to break down their corrugated.
  • In Florida and Texas alone, an astounding 4 MILLION tons of cardboard were landfilled last year.
  • “Cardboard packaging in landfills releases some fugitive methane that is not captured in landfill collections systems.1
  • 49% of consumers do not know that boxes should be emptied and broken down for pick-up 29% do not know how to properly break down and recycle extra-large boxes.2
  • With Recyclestrip you simply “Rip the Strip” at the base of the box and the box flattens. A recent GEICO commercial https://youtu.be/k5kBt8PUL48 shows a muscle man fighting to break down corrugated boxes, Recyclestrip offers a more common sense solution than a strongman on every garbage truck!
